COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pils, Carapils, and wheat malts, Belgian candi sugar

This beer is brewed in the Belgian Saison style (country farm house ale). A potent yet delicate ale, brewed with a unique Belgian yeast which develops a spicy, fruity flavor. Enormously complex. Available from May to around August.

Bottle from Shawan Liquors. Pours golden with a thin white head. A little friuity on the nose. Not as funky on the tongue as I was hoping for. I get fruity but its a bit one note. At least the finish is clean.

mansquito (3281) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 6, 2013
Big Top Beverage Mart, Roslyn variety case: Pours light copper with a white head. Aroma is bubblegum, saison funk, and mild fruitiness. Taste is a sweet load of bubblegum. Ain’t bad, but with my favourite style I expect more.

Great example of a Belgian styled beer. If you want American style hops, go somewhere else. Spicy, banana, all the Belgian flavors you expect. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Musty sugary banana and spicy peppery aroma. Clear brassy gold with a large off-white head. Musty fruit, Belgian yeast, spicy peppery flavor. Creamy body, on the light side of full, lively carbonation.

Scrapersnbeer (1466) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 13, 2013
Aroma of yeast and citric rock candy. Orange-light copper color, expected CO2 effects. Heavy cotton candy flavor, serious sugar bomb. Appropriately slick body. Doesn’t come off as strong, unfortunately not at all nuance either.

hopmelt (153) - Painesville TWP, Ohio, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Pours clear golden, slight thin white head, thick lacing. Aroma tropical fruit, bubble gum, clove, sweet malt, wheat. Taste sweet, bubble gum, tropical fruit, faint spice, very little noble hops. Mouth feel medium body and carbonation, sweet finish, very slight spicy bite. Overall, not offending, no where near style, but well balanced and pleasant, a bit too sweet for me.

12 oz bottle for 2 bucks. Pours a hazy amber/gold color with a white head. Aroma is yeast with an underlying aroma of candy. Just an okay aroma, not particularly appealing to me. Taste is spicy and lingers. Also some sweetness but doesn’t really overwhelm, at least for me. Not a bad beer but I would be hard-pressed to consider buying it again.
